    My rides are limited to local back country roads to get lunch locally. I probably do less than 1,000 miles a year now. My wife no longer likes to ride as she is older than I and not interested is 'zipping'. No more full speed runs to Montreal to woo women! I still will enter a multi day dual sport and enduro rides and place well, as I ride slow and steady. Passing all the kids that started flat out and either crash or are exhausted after the first 150 miles off road. I'll start in last place waiting for the dust to settle (#200 out of 200) and end in the top 25. More than good enough for me!

    275 lb dirt bike and 160 lb rider -- but I get the idea!

    All the zippy crotch rocket riders were told when they wanted to race, "You pick the start and I'll pick the finish". If they said the next light, I'd pick some town 500 miles away...

    2000 Concours. Was a great bike. Upgraded to a Honda ST1300 and rode that for seven years. Now downsized to a Honda NC700X.
